  • Domestic tasks such as cooking, helping me eat, cleaning my home, going shopping.

  • Assistance going to and from appointments, for example GPs or opticians.

  • Overnight support - getting food/drinks if I am up late. Assistance going to bed. Rolling me over multiple times through the night.

    No previous experience is necessary. An open mind, communication, honesty and a sense of humour are probably the most important qualities for the post as well as an ability to listen to guidance on how best to support me. The position is permanent with paid holidays and pension contributions., Reliable and trustworthy.

  • Punctual.
